The U.S., South Korea, and Japan should refrain from providing any food or other humanitarian assistance to North Korea until it agrees to abandon its nuclear arms with a robust element of verification. No nation is required to provide aid to North Korea. Until the North Korean regime understands that the costs of its intrasnsigence far exceed the benefits, it will likely remain committed to nuclear arms and continuing provocations.
    thanks for the reply

    why should we initiate an attack on iran in the belief that it might be developing nuclear weapons

    while we avoid engaging NK militarily when we observe that they are actively developing nuclear weaponry
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    Because NK is scarier.....

    I haven't called for such an attack. Moreover, I've suggested all alternatives be examined. Alternatives could include a deterrence regime with a guaranteed nuclear response against Iran were a nuclear weapon to be used against the U.S. or its Mideast allies or attempted to be used (modeled after M.A.D.). I am not convinced that Iran could not be deterred.

    You were talking about how in the cold war it was better. Since it was so great then, maybe Reagan shouldn't have won the Cold War.

    That's a good question. Taiwan is especially sticky, but since China considers it part of China maybe they'd handle that one.

    So you think war with China serves...whose interests exactly?

    Wars are good business, especially when you are the largest arms merchant in the World. That would be the USA. You know, we sell arms to both sides and profit handsomely. The only hard part is getting the wars started. The answer is it serves the interests of USA arms manufacturers.

    On the plus side, NK is going to be too broke to keep building nukes to test on themselves with before too much longer........

    Well a nuclear exchange with China probably wouldn't leave much money to make.
